Au Cirque is simply the best breakfast place in Brisbane. The Chow Down is great value-I always go for the vege version which is great. Sometimes I go for the corn cakes which are good too. Good options available for the sweet tooth as well. Can be crowded but that's because it's good. Only drawback-they don't do lactose free milk... More

Without a doubt the best coffee in Brisbane. Definitely a must try! Great coffee, good food and customer service. Perfect place for a spot of Sunday breakfast

One of my favourite brunch spots in Brisbane! This place is always busy, but I have never had to wait for a table - always seated very quickly. The staff are also very quick to take your order, but sometimes it takes a little while for the food to come out. No wonder though - this is a very popular... More

Was told that this is the best place in Brissy for breakfast. Coffees x 2 were nicely made and the blend was great. Ordered the Eggs with hollandaise and ham. Everything was lovely except it did take a while to come and was on the warm side. It was delivered upstairs with 3 other dishes so I suspect they were... More

We visited this cafe in New Farm after reading positive reviews about the food and thought we would give it a try. When we arrived we were not acknowledged by staff and waited a good 5 minutes without anyone asking us if we would like some help. This was already not a good start but we thought we will give...

This is my favourite brunch spot in Brisbane, it has fantastic food and a real nice vibe and decor. The food is amazing, but all the locals know it so you may wait for a seat during peak brunch periods. There is seating outside to have a coffee at while you wait for a table though. Staff are pretty attentive... More

Tried here for the first time for a Sunday breakfast. We had driven past many times and had always noticed how busy it was and assumed it must be for a good reason. We arrived just after opening so no problems getting a table. Our first impression was that the place was very small until we later realised there was... More

Two breakfasts we had, and twice we were delighted by the excellent food delivered quickly and happily. Definitely recommend for anyone staying in the Fortitude Valley & New Farm precincts. Only drawback is how busy (and loud) it gets - go on a weekday after 930.

Very good service. Very good food. Our son took us there as it is one of his regular places for great breakfasts and we were very impressed. The flavors were outstanding and the offerings were creative and well thought out. We ate upstairs and really enjoyed the ambiance. Service was prompt and friendly.

Regular at this place and it doesn't get any better in new farm. Generally have to wait for a table at the weekends but certainly worth it and more! Excellent attentive service with great coffee and glorious food. 10/10.
